On PCI: A leak suggests cool new Fortnite skins are coming soon

Shantae's nemesis Risky Boots wins poll to become next CharaGumin figurine


Avast behind!

Hot on the curled slippers of her rival Shantae (and her undead pal Rottytops), Risky Boots, Queen of the Seven Seas, has been selected by fans as the next character to receive a CharaGumin figurine, courtesy of model makers Volks USA.

Risky is the villain of the piece in numerous Shantae titles, though she is forced to side with the pesky half-genie hero in the fantastic Shantae and the Pirate's Curse. Riding her vessel, The Part Omni-Organic, Partially Titanic, Ocean-Optional Tinkerslug - or Poop Toot - and backed by her goofy crew of Tinkerbats, it is Risky's dream to hold fort over Sequin Land as the most feared villain of all.

Risky was selected by a poll held at the recent Anime Expo 2018. Customers purchasing Shantae products were given a sticker to select the next figurine from a choice of Risky, Shantae's bird-keeping pal Sky, or her doofus buddy Bolo. Risky just pipped Sky at the post, with Bolo coming in third with a still-respectable amount of votes.

There is currently no date set for Risky Boots' to arrive, but it only took Rottytops six months from announcement to release, so we should be seeing the pirate princess early in 2019.
